It just so happens the Chicago Tribune had an article today about a case
that seems to be raising some of those issues. Here's the link:
In general, issues of training and oversight come up in police misconduct
litigation and civil rights cases, especially in the context of class action
claims. I'd look in the Police Misconduct and Civil Rights Law Reporter (I
think that's what it's called), which probably has articles that address the
issue, or look in any basic Section 1983 or civil rights case book.

Subject: Constitutional basis to police accountability and oversight?
I'm participating on a panel at my school sponsored by the ACLU on police
accountability and oversight, and they have asked me to speak on potential
constitutional claims to minimum levels of police accountability and
transparency. I really have not seen constitutional arguments on this
subject, however, and wondered whether anyone else has who perhaps can
direct me to some resources.
Many thanks in advance!
